Ensuring environmental stewardship for our community

AUB treats the waste from both industry and residential customers across the service region. To do so, we operate two separate wastewater treatment plants. The newly renovated facility, called the Oostanaula Plant, is located on Alford Street. It is permitted to discharge 6 million gallons per day with peaks of up to twelve million gallons per day. The other facility, known as the North Mouse Creek plant, is located on Whittaker Road and is designed and permitted to treat 1.2 million gallons per day with peaks of up to 3 million gallons per day.
